The internet has made daily newspapers redundant.

Now they only exist for the extreme political agendas of the people who own them.

I disagree. I subscribe to a local daily paper and try to read it every day. You'll never get as much local news from the internet as you will from a newspaper. Besides, the best internet news sites are the ones run by news networks or newspapers in the first place. The websites would be driven by the same 'agenda' as the printed version. Those that aren't operated by media agencies would be rather suspect and lack credibility.

I'm with Chuck. I read a local newspaper daily and on Sunday try and buy a bigger city newspaper (either "Chicago Tribune" or "New York Times" or the weekend edition of "Wall Street Journal"). Most people who get their news online only skim the surface of what's contained in a newspaper. They only read the main or breaking stories, when there is a lot more news contained within. News readership has dropped as we've become a society of samplers. No one reads a complete newspaper anymore or listens to entire music CD. No one has any time and so they just skim the surface of everything.
